  1. highly uncalled for in such a time like this. so many projects to better the lives of ibadan people, makes them live comfortably are there beckoning on the Governor’s attention. How many roads are motorable in Ibadan? check on the polytechnic ibadan,s premises, you hardly see any well equiped, state of the art structure, not to talk of good road within the campus.
    we all know that, handling such capital projects like university, construction of Bridges here and there, are means of funds diversion. May the good lord help us.

    • University education is a very important part of national development. Oyo state and particularly Ibadan the largest city needs more colleges for the future leaders.Good education with still keep the country and citizenry relevant and its a good weapon against current brood of political mediocres that constitute the political terrain of Nigeria. More schools and less illiterates will foster a better Nigeria in future

    • If you keep writing these “slangz” english, you wont get admission into any school. It is not shorter or abbreviation…. nid/need? What the heck is going on?

  2. This is a good development. We thank God for this development. However, I pray that all that have been said about the new university will be achieved. Also, academic programmes should be such that are relevant to Nigerian Environment. We look ahead to contribute to the growth of the University. congratulations to Oyo State.
